Ultrasound guided fine needle aspirate:

You will be lying on your back on the couch in ultrasound room, with the upper body undressed.

The arm on the side of interest will be raised above the head.

Antiseptic solution is used to clean the skin and then gel will be inserted over the skin and the ultrasound probe placed on top to find the lymph node of interest.

Local anaesthetic may or may not be used.

The needle is inserted into the lesion and the doctor will make several small (less than 1 cm) forward and backward gently movements with the needle to collect cells.

What’s the next step?

The next step is to book a consultation with our qualified team.

You can book your treatment online or call our friendly team on 03 9041 8445.
